    How would you react if you can see a dog as a man in a dog suite? Thats what creator David Zuckerman and Jason Gann (also stars) question and they sell it without taking it serious, which is the fun of "Wilfred" based off the Australian tv hit that was also created and starred Jason Gann.



    Jason Gann is Wilfred, a dog you can love and hate. With his explicit mannerisms and self centered character. He is the unlikeliest of heroes since he saves a suicidal, depressed ex lawyer named Ryan Freeman (Elijah Wood). Ryan is lonely, missing a mother (Mary Steenburgen) who's in a mental institution. Stays away from his father (James Remar) and always takes notice and advice from his controlling sister, Kristen (Dorian Brown).



    Wilfred belongs to Jenna (Fionna Gubleman), Ryan's beautiful neighbor and his crush. Their meeting becomes the start of the most interesting and yet odd relationships ever. Ryan, only sees Wilfred as a human in a dog suit and they smoke pot together. Go through many types of emotions and themes by the explicit incidents they bargain themselves in.



    Elijah Wood seems so right for Ryan and he has a lot of fun sketching a comedic turn that you root for Ryan no matter how much wrong happens to him. Jason Gann, I've never seen him anywhere so I'm guessing this is his signature piece, he's very funny as Wilfred.



    "Wilfred" is a lot of fun, if you don't take it seriously. It has a lot of charm, clarity and it frees Wood and Gann to do just about anything. Its had funny guest stars including Robin Williams, Rashida Jones and Kirsten Schaal. I've enjoyed each of its hilarious and touching episodes.



    Wilfred's a good dog.

  • One of My New Favorite Shows

    My friend was talking about this show when he found out when the third season would premiere, and he flipped out because of how the second season ended. So, I figured I should try getting into this. It clearly worked, when I watched the first season in a single sitting, something I have never done while getting into a show, and something I've only done twice in the past(one season=one sitting). This show is great. Ryan, a former lawyer, tries to kill himself, and then the next day he starts seeing his neighbor, Jenna, and her dog, but he sees the dog as a guy in a dog costume, whereas everyone else sees him as an actual dog. So, Ryan starts hanging out with the guy, Wilfred, as they do on journeys and get high and whatnot. I don't pay attention to a lot of the humor of the show, it doesn't make me laugh a whole lot, but the complexity of it, such as in the first season finale, that's what makes the show for me. The laughs are just a bonus really.moreless

    I really enjoy this, it's nice having a character that's personally identifiable and likeable. The writing is pretty consistent, and Jason Gann as well as Eliajah Wood are really nailing the roles down. Sure it has a bit of a serious "undertone" but overall it's pretty crammed with comedic value. The camera work is pretty good, and I like that it doesn't really feel like a $300 budget 30m sitcom.
